Disaster Book Club

Join OEM each month as we read about disasters of the past, present, and imagination. Each month, an event is hosted in theme of the book. Sometimes we have authors, sometimes we have disaster survivors, and sometimes we have subject matter experts.

If you have an idea for a book, speaker, or event, please contact Melanie Cole at Melanie.Cole@seattle.gov.
